David Hall Story Art Stills - In the Duchess's Kitchen

Well, there certainly is a lot going on here.  Alice has found herself smack-dab in the middle of a frightful scene in the Duchess's kitchen in this watercolor labeled 'III', and sadly not reproduced in the David Hall book.
 This detail shows the Duchess holding her screaming child (not a pig yet), and is labeled 'III A'.
 The details shows the Cook, getting ready to beat someone over the head with a frying pan, labeled 'III B'.
 And finally we see Alice, looking on in horrified fascination.  You can also just make out the Cheshire Cat at the bottom right.  Labeled 'III C'.

Whew, that Duchess is pretty grotesque! Reminiscent of the original Tenniel illustrations, I guess?
